I love to get out and talk to kids & adults about She Made a Monster, Mary Shelley, Frankenstein, writing, reading, and anything else! For now, I do not charge for school visits within driving distance of the San Francisco Bay Area. Contact me and let me know what kind of presentation / reading would suit your group. And if you are not nearby, Skype visits are always a possibility!
